Notes Towards A Critique of Money

Notes Towards A Critique of Money

English | 24 Aug. 2011 | ISBN: 9072076648 | 142 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

This book is the culmination of my research at the Theory department of the Jan van Eyck Academie, in Maastricht. The aim of my project is to analyze the contribution of money in the (re)production of the dominant ideology and, consequently, in the process of social constitution. The focus on money is at odds with most of the critiques of capitalism that concentrate on the commodity form and the problem of alienation. The difference in focus is an important point of departure; it allows for an analysis of the process of the articulation of desire through money and of the constitution of subjectivity in the market economy. The investigation combines a structuralist reading of capitalism's constitutive ideology, where money functions as the main vehicle of meaning and consistency, with a study of the affec - tive investment in this ideology. My main references are the works of Jacques Lacan, Jean Baudrillard and their intellectual heirs. My background is in philosophy of science and social ontology, as well as in neoclassical and institutional economics, with an emphasis on monetary theory.
